The One with all the Photos

Well, not all of the photos are up yet but I did manage to export them out of Lightroom and added the border and watermark on Photoshop before uploading them to my blog. Decided to upload them straight to my blog rather than upload them to Flickr and then copy the codes over here.

Given a free book!
First photographer I know to have his own notebooks 🙂

Took this shot when we were presented with notebooks to write down our notes from the lectures. I would have loved to use this notebook but I brought my trusty “Photography Notebook” along with me to Penang. This notebook contains a few other notes from my other photography workshops which I attended.


Presenter with an Apple?

I am glad that I finally gotten my Macbook Pro after waiting for a month for it to clear SIRIM and arrive at my supplier’s doorstep. A huge thanks to Siva who helped me to order in the Macbook Pro and also bearing with my constant SMSes, asking when is the stock arriving. From the shot above, Louis is explaining about what the slide shown on the wall contained and what it meant. Want to know more? Sign up for his workshops here.

According to Louis, my Macbook Pro wasn’t well “trained” enough and he offered to give me his well “trainedMacbook Pro and swap it with my “untrained” one. Too bad Louis, I am going to train mine in my own special way 😀


Show by example!

Here we have Louis explaining to the models on what he intends to do with them. It was good that Louis and Arden hired models who were not experienced in posing. This really made us work hard to get them to pose properly!


Shooting with a D3 and a 70-200mm f/2.8 VR lens

Noticed that the white balance of both the shots above this and the previous ones were different? That is due to the light coming in from the window versus the yellow ambient room lighting. What I learned here is that you don’t need a fantastic location to create wonderful shots. Look at all the equipment everywhere in the room. And yet, I managed to steal a shot with my 85mm lens.

No studio lighting was used to get these shots and we relied heavily on natural lighting. A round of applause to our wonderful models for that session, Samantha and Reynaldo. Appreciate you guys tolerating a newbie like me during the workshop!

Looking at the time now, I am already late for cell group. Hope to get more photos up here soon.

More to come soon…..

  • Hi Mark, as Louis said "Get it right on your camera"… u shud download it from camera and directly upload to your blog. No need processing… 8)

  • Thanks a lot Eugene, will check it out. I definitely need something like that to reduce my turnaround time.

  • Haha you are right about that! But I still want to add the border and add the watermark and do some slight touch up on the models.

  • Aiyoh, still must water-mark-meh? 500-pixels only-mah! :)) You need a watermark script 🙂 Lemme find it and post it here (it's on a nikon forum)

    Anyways, good photos!

  • Here's the link. Quite useful to watermark various image sizes using a batch job in PS.
